About Me and this Page…


ALL photos are mine…enjoy as I discover this new love capturing food with my camera.  I am a long time fan of food.  I have spent the past few years refining my thoughts on what we put into our bodies.  My food now focuses on Fresh food, Local food, & Real food.

My primary focus with food is this…

I get my carbs from my veggie intake and I am NOT afraid of fat…if it’s the right kind of fat i.e. coconut oil, ghee, and fat from grass fed meat.

This is NOT a diet, it is my plan to eat this way for the rest of my life, or as long as I can cook.  If you need to put a name on what we do…it looks similar to a Primal diet (http://www.marksdailyapple.com)

  • I try to only eat grass fed beef/bison/lamb, organic chicken and pork. I am working on the local aspect…ideally we will get all of our meat and eggs from farms in southern California.
  • True Local Pastured eggs only.
  • No processed food…less than 5 ingredients that you are able to pronounce, is my rule.
  • Most of the time…No refined sugar…I use raw local honey, coconut sugar, and dates as my sweeteners.
  • I DO eat dairy, which goes against all of the paleo/primal forms…but we love our cheese!!

  1. Your food looks amazing & your photographs are beautiful. Love it all! I really enjoyed reading your food philosophy, I can relate and feel the same as you. I look forward to seeing more from you.

    • Thank you SO much for the kind words. I feel like my “food philosophy” is always changing, but I think this sums it up pretty well. Real food is so important to me, I am glad you feel the same 🙂
